Designed with natural wellness in mind The Spa at Eccles is the ideal destination for a total mind and body rejuvenation experience. The new Spa will feature three treatment rooms, a deluxe double treatment suite overlooking Bantry Bay and the ultimate selection of VOYA organic Irish seaweed based therapies and wellness experiences. A large outdoor thermal area in natural surrounds features a large sauna, seaweed baths, relaxation loungers and two hot tubs overlooking the bay.
To mirror the surrounds of the spa’s wonderful West Cork maritime location, the Irish seaweed based product VOYA was chosen as the product for the spa. It is made from seaweed hand harvested off the Atlantic Coast of Ireland, from the beach at Strandhill, Co. Sligo. Certified organic, VOYA uses the exceptional healing power of marine elements, long since recognised for their healing, detoxing and purifying abilities.
The Spa at Eccles will offer guests a whole host of spa treatments and wellness experiences including face and body treatments for both women and men as well as a selection of seaweed baths. Dating back over 300 years, seaweed baths were Ireland’s only indigenous therapy and were traditionally seen as ‘the sailor’s cure’.
All signature treatments start with one of the amazing outdoor seaweed baths, then choose from:
The Eccles Wellness Journey: two hour truly amazing detoxifying therapy using organic seaweed leaves to detoxify, firm and soften the skin, completed with an application massage of VOYA’s Softly Does It to nourish and soften the skin, ideal in conjunction with a weight loss programme.
The Second Signature treatment is the Eccles Rejuvenating Experience which starts with a relaxing back massage to induce relaxation and gently melt away muscular pain, followed by a hydrating and purifying facial, that leaves the skin rejuvenated, hydrated and reduces the appearance of deep-set wrinkles. Two hours of bliss.
All of the treatments available are designed to evoke instant peacefulness and nurture inner mindfulness, calm and serenity.
David Manning, General Manager at Eccles Hotel says the team can’t wait for residents and locals alike to experience the new Spa at Eccles “We have been very busy here at The Eccles Hotel over the last two years, and after putting in a major effort to upgrade other parts of the hotel, this is the culmination of ambition to return The Eccles to its rightful status of West Cork’s most iconic hotel and a destination wellness experience once more.”
